What a treat to visit this museum and check out heaps of private collection and information on the life of the worlds most famous King Fu Master. It was extremely informative and was really well presented.

This is an excellent museum, with an eclectic mix of historical(pottery from ancient times) and the (relatively) current, with an excellent exhibition of Bruce Lee and his importance to modern HK culture and its now-famous movie industry. Entrance to the museum is free-and it's well worth your time; definitely visit.

The visit to this museum was not worth our time and we only spent about half an hour there. The main exhibition was Bruce Lee and the wedding ceremonies. There was a documentary showing in the theatre and we only stayed for about five minutes as the full documentary lasts about an hour and a half and it was of... More

A nice building. A children's fun area that is well intended, but a lot of broken exhibits. Excellent exhibition on weddings in the forbidden city, but extremely busy. Main exhibition on village life in the New Territories was closed for renovation until the summer. Bruce Lee exhibition ok but a lot of fighting for little kids. Recommend to check which... More

I was in Sha Tin anyway for the Ten Thousand Buddha Monastery and thought I'd drop by. Was positively surprised. The Bruce Lee exhibition is a must if you are interested in one of Hong Kong's most famous sons. Many really interesting exhibits like handwritten poems and letters, merchandise, original costumes including the iconic yellow jump suit from "Game of... More

There are a range of exhibits ranging from Bruce Lee to traditional Chinese art to contemporary folk culture. The quality of the special exhibits can vary - some are local affairs but once in a while there are outstanding special exhibits - like the current one on royal wedding in the Qing Dynasty (to end in Feb). You can use... More

We went during an afternoon, it is located near 3 subway stations so all of them can give you access to the museum. The exterior building is building and full of Chinese influence. It is located in Shatin, so not really a tourist-crowded place and not so close to downtown. It is okay if you wanna come around but traffic... More

Situated in the suburb in a well treed site, next to a flowing stream, with a Chinese influenced archetecture, the museum presents a picturesque and tranquil setting. A step inside the entrance, one is greeted by an open lobby and a wide, sweeping staircase modelled after the Forbidden City, leading to the upper floor.The purpose of our visit was to... More

Visited on a rainy and chilly day during recent stay in Hong Kong. Directions to the museum are VERY complicate on Google or anywhere else. We finally arrived there via subway, bus, and LOTS of walking. Not in the best mood. Anyway, visit started pleasantly enough with nice exhibits including Cantonese opera and a Wedding exhibition, but then .... Almost... More
